Leadership Greenville raising money to build track at Tanglewood Middle


GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Leadership Greenville Class 46 is asking the public to support them in their effort to build a new running and biking trail at Tanglewood Middle school.

Organizers said students at the school enjoy hosting 5K races and being active outside and could therefore use the track for multiple purposes.

Right now Principal Edward Anderson transports students in his running club on Fridays to the Swamp Rabbit trail which he said can take some 30 minutes to get to and from. The trail would eliminate the need for outside transportation and encourage community interaction at the walking path as well.

Many business leaders are joining forces to try to raise more than $80,000 to able to build the track.

Leadership Greenville member Tyler Cox is owner at Palmetto’s Finest Landscapes and will be building the trail if the money is raised.

Other members speaking about the project include Augusta Rd Senior Pastor Matt King, Lauren Winkleman Smith with the United Way, Nick Farr of Galivan, White and Boyd P.A.

Principal Anderson said he is looking to empower his students to rise above some of the circumstances they have been given and have a healthy body and mind.
